Sacred Mysteries opens by reflecting on the continual process of reform in the church and on the foundational principles for all liturgical action. It then moves to a discussion of each of the sacraments, with particular reference to the way they are ritualized in the assemblly. A final chapter addresses practices that can cloud the experience of mystery during liturgical celebrations and thus inhibit rather than enhance the power of the rite. Clergy and laity who are concerned about the effectiveness of worship will find much in these pages to reflect on and to enhance the quality of their celebration.
A practical and theologically sound guide for celebrating the sacraments that identifies their historical and theological roots, then offers suggestions for making them come alive in a congregation.
